Thank You, God, for nature

by Bettina Van Vaerenbergh

Dear God,

Thank you for the sunshine
That makes the plants grow.
Thank you for life-giving rain
And for the winds that blow.

Thank you for the birds
That sing with all their might,
And for the scented flowers
You made just for our delight.

Thank you for the rainbow;
Dear God, it's wonderful!
Thank you for the starry sky;
So vast and beautiful.

Thank you for the trees
That shelter us from the heat,
And supply us with fresh oxygen
So we can freely breathe.

Thank you for our planet earth;
For all the good she gives…
Thank you for the oceans -
And all that therein lives.

Thank you, God, for nature -
All creatures great and small.
Thank you, dear Creator,
'T was You who made them all!

How could we not feel wonder
For the work of Your hands?
There's still so much to learn,
So much to understand…

Give us now the wisdom, God,
We so desperately need -
And help us to take better care
Of the gifts we have received!
